  • arrow_drop_downarrow_drop_upEnglish translation
    Pileus 3-10 mm in diameter, at first hemispherical or conical-convex, brown or yellow-brown, then convex or plano-convex, wrinkled, yellowish or creamy, often brown on the disc, decorated with floccose, whitish aggregates of velar remnants, tending to become glabrous. Lamellae adnate or subdecurrent, crowded, narrow, at first whitish, then yellowish, yellow or pale orange, finally brown, lamellulae common. Stipe 5-12 x 0.5-1.5 cm, subcylindrical or attenuate upwards, at first whitish, cream or yellowish, then whitish or greyish, annulate. Annulus very small, whitish, cream or yellowish, superior, vanishing. Context white, bitterish. Basidia subcylindrical, constricted in the middle, four-spored. Basidiospores brown in mass, (9.0-) 9.5-11.0 (-12.5) x (6.5) 7.0-8.5 (-9.5) μm, amygdaliform or citriform, roughened, germ pore absent. Pleurocystidia versiform or subfusiform, often mucronate or rostrate. Cheilocystidia subcylyndrical or narrowly clavate. Pileipellis constituted by an epicutis of repent, cylindraceous hyphae and a subcutis of swollen subcellular hyphae. Clamps present.

  • arrow_drop_downarrow_drop_upHabitat and distribution
    Where only one possible associate was recorded, the most commonly recorded associate was Lithocarpus (50.0%) but Fagaceae (50.0%) were also recorded. In these cases the most commonly recorded family was Fagaceae (100.0%). We have additional records where Castanopsis (33.3%) and Dipterocarpus (33.3%) were recorded as possible associates, but in these cases a number of possible associates were mentioned. Overall the most commonly recorded families are Fagaceae (100.0%) and Dipterocarpaceae (33.3%) The growth habit of our collections was often scattered or solitary and occasionally caespitose or gregarious.

    According to our current data, the species is found on multiple continents with collections found in Temperate Asia (57.1%) and Tropical Asia (42.9%). On these continents, collections have been found only in the tropical & subtropical moist broadleaf forests WWF biome The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have divided the world into 867 terrestrial ecoregions. The ecoregion here is estimated by mapping from the GPS coordinates of the collection using data made available by Dinerstein et al (2017). Use this webtool to explore the ecoregions visually or see a full list of current ecoregions on Wikipedia. (Northern Indochina subtropical forests (57.1%), Luang Prabang montane rain forests (28.6%) and Kayah-Karen montane rain forests (14.3%) ecoregions). From collector information, it appears collections have been found in the 1.5 Forest – Subtropical/tropical dry (57.1%) and 1.9 Forest – Subtropical/tropical moist montane (42.9%) IUCN habitats We map from the collector's description of the habitat to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)'s definition using a standardised set of rules. Please see this page for a full list of IUCN habitats..

    Within Temperate Asia all our records are from China (Yunnan).

    Within Tropical Asia all our records are from Indo-china (Laos and Thailand).
